    3W. Like you have to ask. It has always been more desirable.
     
  3. 5 Window, full fendered & unchopped.

    According to internet sources ... 1932 Ford production figures are

    Five-window Standard coupe 51,794
    Three-window Deluxe coupe 22,148

    So Ford made about 5 standard coupes for every 2 DeLuxe 3W coupes. But ...

    On March 31, 1932 ... ( the day that the 32 Ford was introduced ) a 5W coupe was listed for $440.00
    and the 3W was listed for $525.

    That is 85 dollars more for the 3W.
    That is almost a 20 per cent increase ... :eek:

    For comparsion ...
    If a new Ford Mustang is $30,000
    The 20 per cent upgrade would be $36,000 :(
    That is a sizeable deterent.

    But if you keep up with 32 Ford prices and trends ... the 3W still comands a 20 per cent or better price. :)

    I've seen so many glass 3W's, I think subconsciously I gravitate to the 5W's when I'm at a car show...
